Today is Palm Sunday (Matthew 21, Mark 11, Luke 19:28-48, John12:12-38). I went to bed thinking about Psalm 8, especially verse 2. I mediated on a number of different translations. My favorite: “From the mouths of children and infants, you have built a fortress to silence the enemy and the avenger” Psalm (GWT). I woke up and then proceeded to connect the two together: Palm Sunday and Psalm 8:2. In Matthew 21:16-17, Jesus quotes from Psalm 8:2 after the religious leaders are indignant about the children crying out praises at His triumphal entry into Jerusalem. On Palm Sunday the children shouted praises to “Hosanna, the Son of David.” They cried out, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” Psalm 8 decrees that these praises – this worship spoken from the mouths of children, actually releases the way for the Lord to silence His enemies, i.e. Satan and his kingdom of darkness. This same Psalm establishes that the excellent Lord, our Lord, has made man to have dominion over the works of His hands…over all that He has created. How? Through the praises of His children!

It’s no wonder Satan has targeted the children. He knows the power they contain when they take hold of Jesus, start living for Him and begin releasing His praises! We are currently in the midst of a 30 Day Praying Through the 4/14 Window Global Initiative. (Please check the article/link on this site or my Facebook arts express’d page at https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/notes/the-arts-expressd/from-the-mouths-of-children/178006598917886 for more details.) As the Body of Christ, we must take hold of praying in the Father’s Kingdom purposes to take back what the enemy has stolen from His Kingdom: the hearts and minds of His children, the purity of His children, the destinies of His children, and even the very life of His children. We must pray in the very strategies of Heaven to reach this age group (ages 4-14) worldwide, as in Christ, they contain the power to transform their nations for the Kingdom of Heaven. It’s a God-sized vision and a God-sized calling. It is exactly God’s way to take what the world has exploited, cast aside, or rendered insignificant and powerless, His most precious ones, to do a worldwide move of His Spirit that the Earth has not yet seen. The Father’s heart, eyes and mind are on His children, especially those most vulnerable and needy.

The children were the very ones who welcomed and ushered in the Son of God on Palm Sunday as He set forth to become the reconciliation between His Father and all mankind. We should be praying for the children to again usher in the very move of the Kingdom of Heaven the world is so desperately in need of: the move of His Holy Spirit that will transform the nations in preparation for His return.

Nothing is impossible with God. “Raise up Your mighty army of worshiping, praising warriors, Jesus…those who will be the very way You silence Your enemies worldwide! Release a blood-covered revelation and move of Holy Spirit throughout the Earth. Send dreams, send visions, provide and protect supernaturally on behalf of the children and youth of the nations, especially the fatherless and vulnerable…those who have no one to provide for them…no one to protect them…no one to affirm or nurture who they are or cast vision for their eternal purpose here on Earth as it is in Heaven. Reveal to us the supernatural strategies needed to be Your hands and feet in empowering Your children, Father…in every tongue, tribe and nation, Father. In Jesus’ glorious name. Hosanna in the Highest! Amen!”
